Open Course Library


The Open Course Library is a collection of expertly developed educational materials – including textbooks, syllabi, course activities, readings, and assessments – for 81 high-enrollment college courses. 42 courses have been completed so far, providing faculty with a high-quality, affordable option that will cost students no more than $30 for textbooks. All materials are shared under a Creative Commons (CC BY) license unless otherwise noted.


Our goals:

  • Lower textbook costs for students
  • Provide high quality, open resources for faculty
  • Improve course completion rates

Phase 1 Courses

Our 42 phase 1 courses are now available. All course materials are shared under a Creative Commons (CC BY) license unless otherwise noted. [snip].

Our phase 2 courses are currently being developed. They will be available Spring 2013.
